    Abstract

    The impact of political ecology testifies that agrarian-related issues, such as the political economy of food production, are by no means alien to political geography. But agrarian issues do not occupy a prominent place in the sub-discipline; nor do studies of agrarian geographies rank high amongst contributions to Political Geography. There are some serious indications, not least in 2008, that all of this might have to change. I use three cases in what follows to suggest that emerging ‘agrarian political geographies’ alert us to the value of expanding political geographers’ field of vision into the countryside and onto the (broadly construed) political dimensions, dynamics, and impacts of contemporary agrarian struggle and change.
